Certified Reverse Mortgage Professionals

Certified Reverse Mortgage Professionals

The following individuals have earned the Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional designation. Individuals who earn the CRMP have demonstrated their knowledge and competency in the area of reverse mortgage lending, and are dedicated to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice in the industry.

To qualify for the designation, candidates must have a minimum of three years experience in the reverse mortgage business or they must have personally closed 50 or more loans; earned 12 hours of continuing education courses, completed NRMLA’s Ethics Course;  passed a rigorous exam and a background check. The certification is valid for three years, during which time designees must sit for an additional 8 hours of continuing education per year to be re-certified.

“We were intent on creating a Certification that is rigid enough to demand the respect of professionals and government officials and the confidence of America’s seniors,” says Peter Bell, President & CEO of the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association. “On behalf of the entire membership, we congratulate these designees, all of whom have demonstrated a deep understanding of the product and an eagerness to continually pursue additional education.”
